LAN cable failing

Long story short.
I had a minor problem with a LAn cable, and when I tried to fix it (I had no idea what I was doing) I accidentaly disabled it - its not listed on Network and Sharing Center, even though I still have the cable plugged in. Ask and I'll give you additional info.

Open the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side Click on "Change adapter settings", Right click on the Local area connection icon and enable it.

Thanks, it worked :P

Now theres another problem wich I wanted to ask about. Me and my friend use a LAN cable to have the best available connectivity and had a direct tunnel (green icon) on Hamachi to play Minecraft together . Now I turned off Hamachi for a short time and now the tunnel is relayed (blue icon) and nothing seems to help. I diagnosed the connection thing for the cable and Windows says its working properly.

bundling HDMI cable together with USB 2.0 cable will be interferences?
If I tape together tightly HDMI and USB cables for a 15 foot run, will they cause any interference? I know they are digital signals so I think should not. But doing this does cause a herring bone interference with analog vga cable.

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.
